Canon 5D Mark IV - Bracketing while using Intervalometer

Can you simultaneously use exposure bracketing while using the intervalometer on the Canon 5D Mark IV?  I will be photographing the total solar eclipse next month.  I want to set up interval shots (every 2-3 minutes) and bracket the exposures on each one.

Why bracket? You can get exact exposure values ahead of time.

Most experienced eclipse photographers recommend bracketing since the exposure is changing frofm first contact to totality.

I think you will have to buy one and try it. Since it seems to be simply a relay that closes the shutter contact, it should do whatever happens when you press the shutter button.

 

Here is where a cheap chinese copy might do better than the Canon version.

I actually have a TC-80N3 but I have not tried it with the 5D Mk IV yet.

Try and report back, you can add something useful to the internet that google cannot find yet! 8^)
